Posted:Not like the other two where you ask stupid questions and get stupid answers...this thread is for those moments in rea life when people ask you stupid questions that have perfectly odviouse explinations.

My brother came into my room and saw the staff I just made the other day and asked...

'Whats that?

A staff

What for? Casting magic spells?

No for spinning

Oh, that makes much more sense now. Why does it have to be purple

It dosent have to be anything

Why is it purple?

Because otherwise its a dirty mop handle

Are you sure he wasnt just a 39 year old trying to be young? Down with the kids n all



Well... no. He was around 18. I think I was 15 at the time. I reckon that a 15 year old hanging around a 39 year old is a tad... weird.

Fortunately, when i'm down the park spinning, i dont get asked "what are they" questions. The area is policed by my 5yr old.

kid: "whats she (points at me) doing with those socks?"

my kid: "poi. she's spinning poi. thats my mummy. she's playing poi."

kid: "but they're socks"

my kid: "i know that but they're poi too."

kid: "why is she doing that though?"

my kid: "because it's fun."

Posted:to be fair, when my friend introduced me to poi, I think I probably said "what? poi??" and she most likely had to say, "yes POI!"
It's not a dumbass thing. If you've never heard about it or seen it before how are you expected to know what it's called!

Posted:At eastbourne festival of fire yesterday and was juggling/spinning/devilsticking/diabloing by the childrens workshops area.

This one little kid came up to me...

"Why have you got all these toys with you?"

"Because I like playing with them"

"Did you buy them from a circus"

"No"

"Are you in a Circus?"

"No"

"Are you training to be in a Circus?"

"No"

....

"Oh"

Posted:hehe I remember when me and Sym went for a spin in his local park, he'd brought his unicycle to have a go on. there were about 7 or 8 little kids who asked us if we were in the circus as well! We said no, i think they asked if the circus was in town, we said no. Then they asked if we wanted to be in the circus, Sym said yes! tongue
We taught them some poi, one girl got the 3 beat weave straight away! and they loved the unicycle! awwww

I always say no... but I offer to light their cigarette for them by breathing fire. I haven't gotten someone willing yet.

Posted:not really a question but a stupid remark made by someone in a car to about 7 people spinning in a park:
"BUY SOME SHOES HIPPY!"

i didnt quite understand this one as we were all wearing shoes at it was the middle of winter. i think it may be some new language...

*cracks up laughing* haha that's awesome...

yeah... my parent's can't figure out what my poi are called, so if they want me to do it or something they just ask if i have fire stuff with me, which works well enough... they think it's really cool and get me to do it at all their parties... it's so cute cuz i'm really not very good... ubbrollsmile
